Heart to Heart Spotlight #3- Stamper's Dream

Yes it is true---Stampers have HUGE hearts. This will be my last post before Sunday as I have lots of pictures to load and information to write up. Be sure to check back for the LARGEST blog candy event ever. It WILL make you feel good!

Today, I am focusing on another company that reached out with a donation for the Alzheimer's Heart to Heart blog candy---Stamper's Dream store. Michelle and I were stamping friends when she decided to form a design team for her ebay store. Since then, she has selected an awesome "dream" team and has broken away from ebay to host her own store.

If you are not familiar with the store, Michelle carries these lines:
Artful Stamper, Gina K Designs, Hero Arts, Impression Obsession, Inkadinkado, Inque Bourtique, Judikins, JustRite, Memory Box, My Favorite Things, Northwoods, Outlines, Paper Inspirations, Penny Black, Stampendous and more!

She is also stocked with awesome products such as Spellbinders nestability dies, Prism Papers, Neenah cardstock, Prima Flowers, May Arts ribbon, Stickles, Momento dew drop ink, Sakura stardust gellyroll pens, cuttlebug embossing folders, bind-it-all, designer paper by Basic Grey, Memory Box, Cosmo Cricket and LOTS more!

You should check it out--she is stocked with everything a stamper dreams about!!

Here is my card for today. I chose this image from Impression Obsession called Partridge in a Pear Tree! I had to force myself to NOT sing the Christmas Carole while coloring this image!

I used my Copic markers on the image....and it was so much fun to color. I have no clue what color a partridge is but I went with blue!
I added some gold to the dangling stars using my gold Zig Painty pen. I use my Stardust Gellyroll pen to add some sparkle to the bird (difficult to see in the picture!) The sentiment was from the Cute & Curly (Stampin' Up!) set that I just received. I thought it would be perfect with this image! I finished off the card by adding the scallops and the faux stitching (paper piercing tool and white gel pen!)




Here is a close up of the coloring/details!

Great card. Congratulations on your most successful fundraising! From personal experience, I know first hand, how it snowballs, and it is something so easy to ask others about supporting because you believe so much and get so much out of helping others. You must have a very happy heart, much continued success. bluemoonbynite@yahoo.com
